from FierceHealthcare

An insurer-led care transition program led by pharmacists and focusing on medication reconciliation reduced the risk of 30-day hospital readmissions by 50 percent and saved $2 for every $1 spent for a total mean savings of $1,347 per member, according to a study published in Health Affairs.

Most care transition and medication reconciliation programs are managed by hospitals and other providers. more
